Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1273868
Heketi doesn't allow deleting nodes with drives missing/inaccessible
Last modified: 2016-11-08 17:25:30 EST
Description of problem: When drives are unreachable/missing from a node where volumes existed, heketi has no provision to delete the node from the cluster. Hence even the cluster it belongs to cannot be deleted without removing the db file. Volumes associated with the node can be deleted though.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): 1.0.0 (Upstream build)
How reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create a cluster and then create a heketi volume
2. On one of the nodes, disable the drives (shutdown the machine)
3. Try deleting the node
Node deletion fails.
Github Issue: https://github.com/heketi/heketi/issues/232
Heketi deletes the entry from its database. On the node, an application will have to go and cleanup the volume groups/bricks manually.
Verified with heketi-1.0.1-1.el7rhgs.x86_64
